Today is a CROSS TRAIN or REST day.
We have updated our challenge to include TWO potential REST days. We want you to feel accomplished, but not overworked!
If you choose to cross train, it can include any type of movement. Hiking, biking, walking, lifting/weights, kettlebells, kickboxing, P90x… the list goes on! The idea is to get in at least 30 minutes of movement and work various parts of your body and muscles that you don’t necessarily work doing yoga and/or running.
You can find a lot of great workouts on Pinterest, YouTube and other fitness enthusiasts websites/blogs. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
- Just get outside! Hike, bike, walk, just MOVE!
- Our favorite fitness blogs – several have workout ideas
- Jillian Michael’s Banish Fat Boost Metabolism
- If doing the She Sweats 12 week run builder via Whitney Carlson, focus on that
Many of our runners do their long run on Saturdays [some doing 18 miles tomorrow!], so don’t do anything too strenuous or new on a Friday. Your body will thank you for it!
